How to Make Smoothies

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Most mornings I make smoothies. It's SO delicious, and a great way to get some fresh produce into your body and those of your husband and kids! Here's our basic recipe:

1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
half cup plain organic yogurt (you can make it in your crock pot!)
several handfuls of organic spinach or mixed salad greens
3 bananas
Enough water, juice, or healthy lemonade to make it all go 'round nicely.

You can do this in a food processor, blender, vita mix, or right now I have a Ninja that I use. Whiz it all up and serve with a straw.

Obviously you can swap out the types and amounts of any of these things, so try it with what you have on hand. Organic berries are best, but if you feel you can't afford them, just start with regular. A big hit with the whole family! (and you can freeze it in popsicle molds if you have leftovers!)
